Now 75 cities to be ranked under Swachh Bharat Mission

Fifteen months after Swachh Bharat Mission was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Ministry of Urban Development has decided to study and rank 75 cities based on sanitation and cleanliness, while also co-opting the public to give its feedback. The task of executing the mission, named "Swachh Survekshan", has been entrusted with the Quality Council of India, and will cover all state capitals and 53 other cities, involving three streams of data collection - citizen feedback, municipality self-evaluation and independent assessment.
